unionman is just very, very good at this game and the point did not go sailing miles above his head. #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement

Whoops! You just wished death on a child.

You guys remember when Charlie Sheen made a cameo as himself in Being John Malkovich and he seemed very self-aware and like he had a sense of humor about himself and his public image? I guess what I’m saying is, Being John Malkovich was a pretty good movie.

I don’t understand what this clip from Meet the Press has to do with anything.

White kids love hip-hop.

I wonder what Steve Winwood thinks about Lost. I guess that will just be one of those mysteries the universe never answers.

And from the director of The Babysitter’s Club apparently.

Studio 8H was originally home to the NBC Symphony Orchestra so it couldn’t be the acoustics. One of life’s great mysteries indeed.

As a person who respects his mom and was raised to see all women as daughter, mothers and sisters who deserve to be treated as gender equals with an important role to play in all aspects of our society I’m appalled. Women have contributed to the world many important things including great feats of science and engineering; masterpieces of literature and poetry; an instinct for nurturing and kindness that keeps us from all just blowing everything to shit; and women count amongst some of history’s greatest leaders. Any attempt to reduce their value as human beings to nothing more than objects for man’s sexual desires demeans all of us and shouldn’t be tolerated by an enlightened, progressive society.

But as a straight guy in his 20′s I can’t help the drooling. It’s just automatic. Sorry Mom.

I know that by the time I’m posting this early Wednesday morning that this comment thread is long deceased but I didn’t catch Mad Men on my DVR until earlier today so I’m late to the party. I just had to comment that I’ve had a really awful horrible day involving a long-term relationship falling apart and very complicated adult stuff happening to me that is extremely buzz-kill and not easy to deal with

BUT

every single sentence of this Mad Men review made me smile such big smiles and made me forget all the shit in my real life for just a few minutes. Particularly “Sally, stop masturbating” (no pedo) and Bodie as accounts exec Peter Campbell (I’m seriously stealing both of those). So I offer you a sincere thank you, Gabe, even if you never read this. Thank you for making me forget about serious, complex life-altering crap for a few minutes. You sir are doing the lord’s work and deserve all the internet Academy Awards presented to you by January Jones who you are then obligated to politely embrace and kiss because that’s what people in Hollywood do (but not like Brody did to Halle Berry because that was kinda rapey and not Hollywood classy at all). But seriously you deserve awards and a kiss from January Jones. Thanks for cheering me up. Carry on now.

Agreed. That wasn’t comedy gold. That was comedy PLATINUM, baby!

Whoops. You guys signed a contract with AT&T and spent money on an iPhone. Your bad.

I’m so confused right now.

I was certain this would be the first comment. Glad someone picked up the slack.

I don’t exactly follow your critique (maybe your accent is confusing me) but I whole-heartedly support the notion that Tim and Eric are not funny.

Now will you please take back Piers Morgan?

No, Capu Flapu. Being an adult means 1) no bedtime and 2) getting to ruin things for people younger than you. I will not sacrafice these god-given rights.

Yeah. As an experiment in screenwriting it was interesting but not particularly entertaining. Dude was just being way too clever for my tastes with that one.

Magnolia is what happens when you try to make a movie in the midst of a months-long cocaine binge. Flashes of briliance without the focus needed to tighten the narrative into something an audience can digest.

Actually, I do kind of like watching Gabe shoot fish in a barrell so I’m totally with you on The Love Guru and I’ll throw in Hush for good measure (really just the worst thing ever).

And I’ll second your Hard Eight nom. Rented that movie with the highest of expections after watching Boogie Nights and instead ended up with a big ol’ sad.
